The noise of construction is becoming the norm. 
I am rather used to it, and the daytime sound of hammers and tractors is replacing the classical melodies on CBC radio that I play all day.

Summertime is Over...Bring on the Backpacks and Gluesticks

Yes, it's the most wonderful time of the year again. 
School has returned. 
Six fun filled hours of teachers, paper-cutting and problem-solving for the kiddies. 
And six hours of peace and quiet five times a week for me. Ahhh. 
The first week will be sheer bliss for me before I start to feel bored, but by then dance, piano and gymnastics will have begun. 
But on Tuesday the third you can bet you will find me lounging on the deck, tea in hand and not a care in the world. 
Yes, Tuesday will truly be my first day of vacation. 

Our summer looked like this:

Let's just say it was eventful. :)
